Over a decade of experimentation has gone into making this fruity, almost full-bodied, black tea. In addition to the fruity notes, this tea carries a slight honey-like scent. The sweet aroma is produced by including leaves that have been bitten by tiny insects.

Benifuki Japanese Black Tea from Kanaya, Shizuoka is produced in Shizuoka prefecture.
As one of the most respected tea masters in Japan, Imura-san practices his craft in the Kanaya region of Shizuoka. His family has a rich history of tea cultivation with Imura-san being the 6th generation to carry on the family trade. In addition to green teas like Fukamushicha, he also produces black tea. After over a decade of trial and error, Imura-san successfully created an award-winning black tea that is known for its elegant scent and light sweetness. When growing the tea, Imura-san uses a special method called “Chagusaba" to help enhance the growth, taste, and aroma of the tea. This involves scattering grass onto the fields so that it can become a natural fertilizer. Chagusaba is listed as a Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System (GIAHS).
